Sounds like you don't have your path correctly set up (or you've missed
installing sed). Have a look at the FAQ for the paths needed (can't remember
of hand, but c:\cygwin\bin or similar will probably be needed).
Unless you have a strong need to do other wise I think trying to get the
pre-built binaries working would probably be the easiest route. You may have
to set a path to where ever the executable is and then do something like:
ipc-daemon &; initdb -D <data-dir>; postmaster -i -D <data-dir> &
I think there's a postgresql-README in the postgresql-7.1.2-3 packages used
by the cygwin setup. (puts it to /usr/doc/Cygwin/postgresql-7.1.2.README)

P.S. mail the list as well so that all may share
